Gwen Stefani did not release a new album to correct the rumors about her. She said though that there is a lot of dishonesty around her.
After her marriage with Gavin Rossdale ended, Stefani found love and solace in Blake Shelton. She is again making music, but she can still remember vividly how the divorce affected her. Asked by GQ if the album was somehow made to correct rumors, she answered no.
“Everything happens so fast. It’s all happening in real time in the sense that, ‘Used to Love You’ came out only a couple weeks after I wrote it,” she said. “The only reason I did that was just being honest. There’s been a lot of dishonesty around me, and I just don’t understand that because it’s just not how I live.”
She did not even want to make anything in the first place. “I didn’t want to make a record: I just wanted to not die. That’s it. The fact that now I have a record and people are hearing it, it just blows my mind,” she shared.
It’s a feat that the album is doing well right now because she was not in the right frame of mind when she made it. She said she was at a fragile state then. “I did not think anything. I wasn’t thinking. I was feeling and I was dying,” she shared. However, she was able to use her weakness to motivate herself.
“And then I was just like, ‘You can’t go down like this! You have to turn this into music. You have to try, at least,” she added.
She did not only revive her music career; she’s now in television as a mentor in Blake Shelton’s team. She also found love in Shelton, and the two could not be any happier, as reported by E Online.
